It's pretty open....you'll be fine. Best to have high clearance though.

We didn't get anything permanent, but our Rover was really dusty and the stripes in the dust gave us a scare for a few moments   :icon_lol:

I'd say the possibility of coming out without any pinstriping is very favorable.

Worrying about superficial scratches from vegetation will severely limit seeing many great places in the western deserts.

You should be fine. Desert pinstripes buff right out anyway.  :icon_smile:

Old Ore is a SLOW road though....best done in two days if you want to visit the tinaja and hike a bit. There are some nice primitive sites off Old Ore.
